“No free shuttle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

There are many Toyoko Inns in Tokyo to choose from. I did not know which to select but a review made on 27 Nov 2012 in Tripadvisor caught my eye as there is a free shuttle provided by the hotel to the Tokyo main train station.

When I arrived, the reception informed me that there is no such service. All guests have to find their own way to the hotel either by the subway or by taxi which cost 1000 Yen.

This means that between 27 Nov 2012 and April 2013 the free shuttle ceased.

As to the rooms.....like every Toyoko Inn the same furniture and toilet. Clean and well maintained. Breakfast is Japanese menu....simple but adequate.

English language is used minimal and sometimes it can be very frustrating as the reception do not seem to understand.

Room Tip: If non-smoking room is important to you, there are non=smoking rooms available.

Affordable for Tokyo, and only a couple of blocks from the subway. The room is very compact by Western standards, and the bed is really firm by Western standards, but - get used to it! Enjoy the Japanese version of a Western toilet (i.e. squirting front and back). Everything was perfectly clean and fresh. There is an on-site washer and dryer, reasonably priced, which we were happy to use. The desk staff spoke very little English, but we got by OK. The breakfast, which they described as "rice balls", was actually VERY tasty! Give it a try!

Great hotel - they're very much standard hotel rooms, reassuringly identical whichever Toyoko Inn you stay at. And they're Western style, with a normal bed and a Western toilet (phew!).

A Japanese breakfast is included and there's a few pastry type things if you can't deal with the thought of rice for breakfast.

Comfy beds, quiet. Good location, close to the subway.

Staff are great and efficient. And the prices are very reasonable.

I'd thoroughly recommend this (and any Toyoko Inn) to anyone staying in Japan.

Also, a tip: sign up for the Toyoko Inn Club Card when you check in. It costs about 1000yen (approx 12 AUD) and gets you 10% off your room (I think... it may be 5%. Either way, you end up making your 1000yen back in a couple of nights). It's a good way to save money, especially if you're planning to go back.

Affordable with breakfast included. Friendly, some English spoken but don't count on it for all employees. Free shuttle bus to and from Tokyo Station. Very clean and convenient and even though located on a busy street it was amazingly quiet. Drug store next door. I would recommend for visitors on a budget.

Wife and I were there for 5 days/4 nights. Utilized the Tokyo subway for every excursion EXCEPT the Tsukiji fish market tuna auction. With easy access/walk to the S-line of Tokyo subway, and a "Suica" card for instant entry access, this was the most efficient method to see EVERYTHING in Tokyo we desired to see. On the morning we headed to the Tsukiji market at 0400, the S-line on Saturday was closed up at that time. Our plan B was a Taxi which took us to the front of the market.

The Toyoko Inn provided a good Japanese / Continential breakfest with Croissants, rolls, apple filled pastry,salad and sausage. American style coffee in addition to the self service expresso machine served our coffee needs.

Several evenings after a long day of sightseeing, we opt'd for a beer purchase at the local minute mart just 100 ft from the hotel door and due to the small size of the rooms, enjoyed the company of our party in the lobby where the two internet laptops are located.

The Inn has FREE schuttle service to the Tokyo terminal where 80% of the subway and 100% of the JR (Japan Rail) can be obtained. We utilized the schuttle on our last day in Tokyo to transport to Tokyo terminal to catch the Hakatari line to Kyoto. Schuttle runs approx every 30 minutes.

The rooms are small but clean and the hotel is located in a VERY quiet residential type section of Tokyo. There was a major (4 lane) road in front of the hotel but we did not hear/it did not bother us.

During the 5 day stay, we did not encounter the same front desk clerk. While each was as helpful as they possibly could be, the level of spoken and understood English went down as the stay progressed. We did NOT encounter ANY progblem with any staff, just some were more productive for us than others.

I've stayed in many Toyoko inn hotels in the greater Kanto area and I have to say that this particular Toyoko Inn has the best staff! The front desk clerks were very courteous and helpful; unlike a few other busier Toyoko Inn hotels' cold and borderline rude staff.
The best thing of all was the hidden gem of a neighborhood. Ningyocho is part of Nihonbashi. It's a very old town with small but beautiful temples/shrines hidden in alleyways and unexpected corners. It's recommended to walk around the neighborhood without any destination in mind and just soak up the tranquil atmosphere. I assure you that you'll find pleasant surprises along the way.
